CBD Visit: Benches Clear, Two Ejected as TCU Takes Series

Kyle Twomey was ejected.LOS ANGELES — TCU will fly home happy after an emotionally charged series win at USC. On Saturday, the Horned Frogs took a 3-0 win at Dedeaux Field in a game that featured a benches-clearing altercation resulting in a pair of ejections.

TCU scored a pair of runs in the fifth inning on a Jantzen Witte two-run triple and added an insurance run the next inning on a Boomer White single. It was plenty enough. Starter Andrew Mitchell combined with relievers Trevor Seidenberger, Riley Ferrell and Alex Young for a four-hit shutout. USC never even got a runner to third base.

Mitchell picked up his first win since moving into the starting rotation from the closer role in the middle of the season. Young picked up his fourth save. USC starter Kyle Twomey fell to 2-6 despite pitching well.

CBD Visit: Horned Frogs Win Sloppy Affair

Juan Avila awaits his opportunity to drive home the winning run.

Unfortunately, a more thorough breakdown did not save correctly and our tireless reporter did not have time to rewrite everything.

LOS ANGELES — For about six innings, there were young men throwing a rawhide-covered ball and young men swinging aluminum cylindrical wands at it. Eight men stood with leather ball-catchers and one wore extra padding, surely making an over-protective mother happy.

Though they played on a field with four vinyl-covered stepping stones indicating a safe zone, I hesitate to call what occurred for the majority of three hours, the game of baseball. It was definitely not the caliber of baseball that has historically been played by young men representing the University of Southern California and Texas Christian University.

After several miscues and blunders early in the game, TCU finally woke up and grabbed the reins in the late innings of Thursday night’s game for a 5-4 victory at USC’s Dedeaux Field.

Derek Odell carried the Horned Frogs to the win. Odell homered and drove in the go-ahead run. He also got things rolling for TCU in the seventh inning when he delivered a single and scored later in the inning on a Keaton Jones single up the middle.

The next inning, Jantzen Witte walked, stole second and came around when Jerrick Suiter rocked a ball deep into the left-centerfield gap to tie the game. The Horned Frogs scored the go-ahead run when Odell hit a line drive single the opposite way, bringing in Suiter. Continue reading
